State representative and Florida International University (FIU) alumna Jeanette M. Nunez (MS ’98, BA ’94), led a highly interactive session for 33 students in the Health Policy and Economics course, part of the Healthcare MBA offered in the College of Business. Her focus was on what she termed the “three P’s concept”: policy, players and politics.
Nunez is vice president of external affairs at HCA hospitals, Kendall Regional Medical Center and Aventura Medical Center. Previously she served as vice president of government affairs for the Jackson Health System and chief of staff to state senator Alex Diaz de la Portilla. Nunez also served as an adjunct faculty member in FIU’s graduate health management program, in which she taught health policy.
The presentation took place on December 8, 2012.
